Extractions in Colorado Springs, CO

Reasons why a tooth may need to be extracted

When a tooth cannot be repaired or restored, an extraction may be the best option. Our dentists will assess your tooth and determine if it can be fixed or if it should be removed. There are a few reasons a tooth may need to be extracted, such as:

Impacted Wisdom Teeth

An impacted wisdom tooth is one that has not fully erupted into the mouth. Wisdom teeth develop in the late teens or early twenties for most people. If there is no room for them, they may become trapped (impacted).

Impacted wisdom teeth can cause pain, swelling, and even infection. Patients who have impacted wisdom teeth may notice a visible indentation in the gums where the tooth is attempting to grow. These indentations typically do not go away on their own.

Surgical Extractions

If a tooth must be removed, your Dentist Colorado Springs CO will first numb the area to lessen any discomfort. Then, we will gently rock the tooth back and forth until it is loose and then pull it out. Sometimes, the tooth may need to be sectioned into smaller pieces. This depends on the size and shape of the tooth.

At our office, we can perform non-surgical extractions as well (also referred to as “simple extractions”). When you visit our dental office, our dentists will carefully examine your teeth for signs of a problem. If we determine that an extraction is necessary, we’ll take careful steps to ensure your comfort throughout the process.

Merrina Mendez-Itima
this office is so great! i love my whole team. they are efficient, transparent and caring. each visit is personable. i love going to the dentist! which is not something i would have said years ago before finding North End! thank you guys!!
Katie Bugge
I was greeted with a brand new hygienist after check in. She had just been at North End Dental a week. It would have been nice if someone had called to let me know that my regular hygienist was no longer with the practice. She was amazing. Allison was our new hygienist and she too was amazing. This is why I have given a 5 star. I have always had wonderful service at North End Dental. Allison listened to some things that the former Hygienist had done and was very acceptable to those as well as her own touch. She did a wonderful job cleaning my teeth. She is a wonderful addition to North End Dental. WELCOME!!!!! Please don’t loose that customer service. I owned my own business for 15 years. I sold it in 2018. Customer service is so very important. It is lacking in todays businesses.
Billie Greenfield
Wonderful staff and office! I felt very welcomed and trust this office completely! Highly recommend! Toyan was so patient and both her and the Dr were the best!
Barbara Andros
I have used North End Dental for 12 years and they take great care of an ongoing auto immune issue in my mouth. Thanks to everyone there for helping me stay healthy!
Christine Kascak
I am currently unemployed and temporarily on Medicaid. I am a periodontal patient and also in Clear Correct treatment. The care plan and financing are pretty reasonable. I tried a cheaper route elsewhere, but I regretted it and returned to North End Dental. I love the staff and the office. I wouldn’t trust my oral health care to anyone else!
Brent Baldwin
Allie was awesome!! Dr. Moore has been my dentist for 20yrs and hasn’t lost his touch!! Great office, love this place as much as one can love going to the dentist.
Christy Tanaiewski
I cracked a premolar in half. I’ve had a lifetime of dental fear, for good reason. I was super nervous to see a new dentist to extract this tooth. But, Dr. Umphlett was awesome. She managed to not only numb me up but noticed when I started to feel anything. I knew right away that I was in good hands. She explained everything in great detail. Even with my decades of dental trauma, I feel completely comfortable seeing her again and again. Thanks Dr. Umphlett!
Zoey Ballard
After moving here from out of state, my husband and I were very nervous to start with a new dentist. We were/are so very impressed with the entire experience we’ve had since we’ve started coming here. I saw Dr. Umphlett whom was gentle, kind and extremely thorough. My husband saw Dr. Moore whom was equally gentle, kind, and thorough. We both see Abby as our hygienist, she is awesome! Not only is North End Dental absolutely beautiful on the inside, the people who work here are so kind and make sure that you are taken care of. We will not be seeing another dentist as long as North End Dental is in business. Thank you North End for changing our perspective on dentistry and for taking such good care of us!
